Top six tips to succeed in 2018

January is the perfect time to focus on making 2018 your year.

We've compiled our top six tips below to help you start the New Year off on a healthier, happier and less stressful path.

1. Wake up early

Start the day right but getting up a little earlier to do a quick workout of your choice. Exercising increases your productivity and gets your endorphins going which means you will be more awake and energised, ready to tackle your day. Research shows that working out can increase your mental clarity for four to 10 hours post-exercise so get moving!

2. Set career goals

Set both short and long term goals and come up with a plan on how to achieve them in a realistic time frame. Make sure your goals are specific and achievable.

3. Be courageous

Once you have set your goals for the year you then need to put them into action. Don’t be afraid to take risks and put your hand up for opportunities that will help give you the skills and tools to develop your career.

4. Adopt a mentor

Asking someone to be your mentor can sometimes feel unnatural. Instead you should try adopting a mentor. Take the time to think about someone who inspires you, then next time you meet with them follow up with an email. Send them an interesting article or connect them with someone who they might find helpful. Maintain this relationship over time and when the opportunity arises they will be able to offer you support or advice.
